Abstract

The effect of γ-irradiation treatment on the short beam shear (SBS) behavior of a sisal-fiber/glass-fiber/polyester hybrid composite produced by pultrusion was studied. The lower short beam shear strength for the hybrid specimens in comparison to the glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) specimens were due to the poor interfacial bonding between sisal fiber and matrix. γ-irradiation did not have any effect on the SBS behavior of the GFRP samples, while the effect on the hybrid specimens was more pronounced.
